I have become misguided!  I started my 4th hour with pasta salad I had made for a work potluck yesterday.  All my favorite yummies, tomatoes, artichoke and black olives.

And then I got distracted, took an unschelduled break, regained focus, read another chunk, theeeeen, dozed off.  What can I say, I was laying in my most comfortable bed, and if it had been a regular weekday, it would have been time for my train nap, and Mozart lulled me to sleep.

I have to mention that Jane has finally met Mr. Rochester!

The diligence is wearing down, and I’m going to continue reading, but I’m ditching the structure.  I’ll keep checking in with Dewey, I’m all about the mini-challenges, and will continue entering any that interest me.  I’ll also keep an eye on my fellow bloggers who are brave enough to endeavor the entire 24 hours.

I live in a Chicago suburb with my husband and a house full of books. Book collecting, reading, and reviewing consume my life. I have a special affinity for all things Alice in Wonderland. I began my education at Carthage College, wanting to be an English teacher. Eventually I decided that Carthage and I weren’t a good fit anymore, so I transferred to North Park University, where I realized I didn’t want to be a teacher. So I finished my education with a degree in English with a writing concentration. I was always a voracious reader and wrote my first review in April 2007. I don’t remember why exactly I decided to write a review, only that I had just finished The Agony and the Ecstasy and had a strong feeling that I needed to express how I felt about it. This inspired me to write reviews about each book I wrote and after posting on Amazon for two years, I was invited into the Amazon Vine program. I am also an active reviewer/member of Goodreads and enjoy being an active member of the online book community.

  1. Yea for Jane Eyre. And double yea for Rochester. That’s one of my all-time favorites. I almost napped earlier, but I pushed through…and then took a very long break. Ah well. I’m not good at doing something for so long when I know I’m supposed to be. Any other day reading all day would be fantastic. But hey – it’s still fun! Heading back to another Nancy Drew.
